I’m so excited to share with you that the production of CAPTAIN MARVEL is officially underway!
CAPTAIN MARVEL Brie Larson
If you’ve never seen Brie Larson act, I highly recommend you start with HOOT and ROOM. I love HOOT because of the humor and environmental messaging it shares. Brie Larson was just a teenager in the movie. She didn’t have a huge part, but I loved her character! And she was amazing in ROOM.
Now, in CAPTAIN MARVEL, Brie Larson plays Carol Danvers. Carol Danvers becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, CAPTAIN MARVEL is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Production has begun
Marvel Studios has begun principal photography in Los Angeles, California, on its newest film, CAPTAIN MARVEL.
